This spacious contemporary, casually and comfortably furnished, sits on a cul-de-sac in the village of North Truro. The many-windowed great room with it's cathedral ceiling looks out on a graceful sweep of lawn and old apple trees. From the two decks, watch the changing sky and light patterns, hear the abundant bird life, catch the bunnies feeding or a glimpse of our resident fox.
After a day at the beach, wash off sand in the spacious outdoor shower. For dinner, fire up the grill or buy live lobsters from the Souza family at the top of the hill. You can walk those lobsters home on a leash! Cook 'em up with corn and cole slaw and dig in. Just before sunset, head to the bay beach. If the tide is out, let the kids wander the tidal flats while the sun sinks behind Provincetown across the bay. Beautiful!
This art-filled house has light everywhere on both levels. The upper level has a great room with fireplace and sliders to a deck--have your morning coffee here. With ten windows on three sides this room becomes your screened porch. The dining table seats 10, or 12 with an extension table. Off the hall are three bedrooms: a master (queen) with bath, a double, and a twin (2 beds). The master and the double bedrooms each have sliders to a deck. There is a common bath in the hall.
On the lower level is both a queen and a double bedroom; a second living/dining/kitchen combination with windows all around and sliders to a patio with the gas grill. Use this as a rec room--doing puzzles, playing keyboard, or watching TV. The queen futon sleeps two additional persons. A laundry and another full bath are on this level as well. For an added charge, two more people (total: 10) can sleep in the charming gray cottage with twin beds, an indoor toilet and sink and a second outdoor shower.
Walk to the village store for staples, liquors and newspapers; the post office and cafe. Walk/bike to Cold Storage/Pond Village beach (I walk) and the library which has a great discovery PLAYGROUND, story hour and a DAY CAMP open to vacationing families--my grandson attended last summer. The Hyannis/Boston/New York bus stops nearby along with the shuttle bus to Provincetown--a tremendous boon for $1.00 because you don't have to think about parking. It leaves every 1/2 hour.
No pets or smokers please.

I have rented this property for the past twelve or so years- and I hope I will continue but this year, alas, I cannot. it is peaceful, (I write while there) and conducive to great family and friend visits. The house itself and the beautiful surroundings are so comfortable and clean. It's so much fun to have Provincetown be the nearest 'city'. This is a very magical place and I will miss reading and looking out at the dappled sun spots the tree shadows leave on the rolling lawn. Idyllic.

MORE than just a summer rental...
MORE than just a summer rental...
My family and I love this home-- and it is a home-- not just a place you sleep and try to skulk away from as soon as you wake up. We all LOVE being INSIDE this home-- it is grand, open, bright with natural light-- lots of it. We even took advantage of the fireplace in the great living room on a couple of nights where we just HAD to have a fire. The grounds are delightful and well tended and the kids-- if you have them-- can truly run around and have lots of fun hiding and exploring. Everything that you need is a pretty quick walk away-- there's a little grocery store/deli with a wine store inside where you can buy your staples and a sweet cafe and a post office right across the road. There's a jitney bus that stops across from the deli that can take you all the way to P-Town and back for less than 2 dollars. Hook your bike on the front and tool around town! The bay and ocean beach are also close by and offer something for everyone at any time of day. We love coming here and would recommend it to anyone-- couples, families, friends-- it's intimate, inviting, relaxing and very happy-making.

Year Purchased: 1997
About the owner: I'm a retired accountant and bought the house to be near my sister who also retired on the Cape.
Why the Owner Chose North Truro:
This house was purchased as a summer/retirement home. I had first come to the Cape when I was 14 and it worked its magic on me over the years. The house was a complete wreck when I bought it and was totally gut-renovated. After my children married, I began to rent it out when I traveled to visit them. I spend spring and fall weeks there now, but we all come together on the Cape at some point during the summer.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There's so much to love--the grounds, the house itself, sitting on the deck with my coffee or glass of wine, listening to the birds, watching the changing sky; building a fire in the fireplace when the nights are still cool. I love taking a morning walk to the bay and along the beach; swimming; watching the sunset over P-town; driving to the Lighthouse at night just to see its light; riding a bike through the dunes at Race Point; watching movies with the grandkids at the Wellfleet drive-in. Buying great ice cream cones at the pizza place across from the elementary school--can never remember the name. Lastly, I love the location--being able to walk to the village store and being surrounded by year-rounders rather than just summer folk. They keep me in touch with the community.
